Students Walk Out of Garfield High School In Protest of Trump’s Election

About 150 students from Garfield High School were protesting the election of Donald J. Trump as President Monday.

About 9 a.m., the students were walking from the campus toward Mariachi Plaza for a planned rally, according to broadcast reports.

Earlier, Los Angeles police had warned of the impending demonstrations in a statement that stated: “It is very difficult to ensure the safety of children when they leave the safe confines of their school campuses.”

The statement encouraged parents “to discuss with their children the importance of abiding by the law and ensuring that any expression of opinion should be done in a lawful, safe and peaceful manner.”

The statement warned that  protesters who are not peaceful and lawful are subject to arrest for such violations as obstruction of movement of vehicles and people, refusal to obey a lawful order by a law enforcement officer, vandalism and refusal to disperse after an unlawful assembly is declared.

Thousands of students around Los Angeles County walked out of schools last week to demonstrate against the election outcome, prompting Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Michelle King to advise students they can participate in on-campus demonstrations as long as they are peaceful and during non-instructional times, but they are not permitted to leave school.
